Acknowledging that Foxborough residents need answers regarding the town’s problems with brown water, DPW Director Roger Hill and the Board of Water & Sewer Commissioners recently appeared on a Foxboro Cable Access program to discuss the issue.
Foxborough resident Shannon Sylvia recently hosted Hill, Water Superintendent Bob Worthley, Water & Sewer Commissioners’ vice chair Michael Stanton and Water & Sewer Commissioners’ clerk Richard Pacella Jr. on her FCA program, Foxboro Biz.
“In this segment the DPW and Water and Sewer Commissioners will share information on the current state of Foxborough's water, as well as future plans,” Sylvia said. “The current water situation will be addressed, what is currently being done, timelines for future improvements, and what can be expected.”
Sylvia’s segment runs 20 minutes and can be viewed on Foxboro Cable Access on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. After that, it will be posted on the FCA schedule. You can also watch the segment in its entirety by clicking on the video above.
In the segment, Sylvia asks her guests what is causing the brown water problem in town, why the problem wasn’t properly communicated to residents, what is being done to address the problem and how completion of the Oak Street plant will address the brown water issue in town.
Pacella Jr. told Sylvia during the segment the Water & Sewer Commissioners are weighing the option of holding a public forum on the topic to better communicate the water quality issue in town.
Also during the segment, Worthley tells Sylvia the Oak Street plant is expected to be completed between June and August and online by September.
